is he is still using to top surrogates, vice-president biden and former president bill clinton to campaign full speed ahead. >> hello, youngstown. >> after they stick together in ohio monday, biden has to solo rallies tomorrow in battleground florida. today he tried to drum up hispanic turnout by telling the univision talk-show host he and the president have been breaking karnak trying to get a real immigration law even though the president failed to follow through on a promise to pass immigration reform by the end of his first year in office. clinton was in minnesota, as did democrats were supposed to have locked up long ago, but it has suddenly become a battleground. he tried to use a superstar to republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming and economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. and in my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> the obama campus all so suddenly spending $650,000 in pennsylvania, a democratic stronghold wi
the presidencies of bill clinton and george w. bush. dan balz of "the washington post" is author of a narrative of the 2008 campaign. and michael duffy of "time magazine" is author of a book about the world's most exclusive fraternity. the name of that book is "the presidents club." michael duffy as these presidents go from being campaigners to being presidents, how are they transformed? >> you know we asked a couple of the presidents who are still alive what they remember the big surprise or the big shock being when they finally stepped from being candidate into the oval office. and they say three things. one is the speed of the decisions come much faster. and unpredictably. they can't control the agenda. the second is, they're all hard. there are no easy ones and they all are fairly outspoken about just how difficult the choices are. basically there are downsides everywhere. and the third thing is that's a little more interesting. just because you make the decision doesn't mean anything happens. when ike took over from truman, truman said "poor ike, he'll think it's just like the army. do thi
administration even though it was approved by the state department, hillary clinton, and here's the one that -- here's the one that kills me the most. you know the way china is burning our coal? sending it up to the environment? china has agreed with cuba that it's going to drill for oil 20 miles off the coast of cuba which, i think, is 70 miles off the coast of florida? we're not drilling for it? it's our oil. explain that to me. china is going to do it safer than we would do it? we're not drilling because we're afraid of an oil spill, but china is going to extract the oil from the ground in a safer way than we do? this election is going to be two very, very different directions. obama gets re-elected, i say he reaffirms and in stronger terms his just say no approach to energy. i think nuclear power is finished. coal is finished. fracking gets slowed down because if you get intimidated by the environmentalists over the keystone pipeline, wait until you see what they do to him over fracking. we'll work on wind and solar, and china's working on everything else, and once again, we're goin
to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential contest. of course, the romney campaign thinks with the polls tightening up they have a chance. take a look at this. you mentioned the polg eed the . a four point advantage in the president. that is within the sampling area. president obama had a bigger lead here in pennsylvania just a few weeks ago. fred? >> so, paul, is that feeling that the ads have helped the mitt romney campaign kind of put themselves over the top or at least near the top? >> reporter: this state got no attention in the presidential contest until the last week or two. you know what? the obama cam
to make contributions. it happens from time to time. it certainly happened during the clinton years. but i don't think it is a common problem and is not on a scale that you suggest. we're not talking about billions of dollars in any of those cases. it's really thousands or in the worst case, hundreds of thousands. the fact that it is notorious, but you know about them, is in some ways encouraging, because it means the transparency process that we have is working the way it should, that it's possible for people to find this out, and to monitor the process. it is in everybody's interest, in the opponent's interest, to make sure my opponent is following the rules just the way i am, so they look very closely. while there are some incentives and some ways in which bad actors can get involved in the process, i don't think it's a big problem. host: a final question, is this the end of public financing as we see all this money coming into the campaigns? guest: absolutely, and with the program exists today. we will not see president of public funding in the same way ever again. the real question is

clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 ohio residents, we still have that line open to you -- 202- 585-3883. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- frankly, that few of jobs shouldn't be getting anyone satisfied or excited. another comment from james ard -- the jobs numbers are irrelevant. obama has no hope of americans giving him another chance. your thoughts on those comments. guest: nobody is satisfied. no one will say -- let's just quit doing what we are doing. who is able to take us from where we were, which was a hole that was dug with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they wa

to ambassador pickering who has been asked by secretary clinton to undertake an investigation review of what happened. he has not come out with his report yet and we're right before an election this has been politicized as your reporter said, and not by the administration, and i just think it's disturbing that somehow all of these reports come out piece meal and people try to draw broader conclusions, we really owe it to everybody concerned to take a deliberate look at this, and i think it's best if this comes out after the election so it's not political. >> peter, what's your response to that? should we just wait another couple of weeks? there will be hearings to find out the timeline? >> agree with nick up to a point, and he's right. we've been getting piece meal reports, but almost eight weeks after this tragic event, there are more -- there are more questions than answers and they persist, and it's unfair to the american people and it's wrong that we don't have these answers, why are we having this intelligence briefing by a senior unnamed intelligence official as opposed to having a tim

answers. they send off a letter to senator estate hillary clinton inquiring about libyan government personnel being in on this. they paint a disturbing picture indicating elements of libyan government may have been complacent in a september 112012 attack. in the murder of four americans. also reiterates the fact u.s. government may have had evidence indicating the attack was not a spontaneous attack but included prior surveillance of the compound targets. given the location where they were found these documents appear to be genuine supporting a growing body of evidence indicating the obama administration tried to withhold pertinent facts about the 9/11 anniversary attack from congress and the american people. i know a little confusing for you, not because two prominent congressman are saying it or scores of angry top intelligence officials are going off the record, some now on the record discussing it. not because they have been all over it, but because tonight the main street media finally stop ignoring it. don't look now but five days out ahead of the elections the issues the whit
times were under reagan and clinton where economic growth was in excess of 4%. your an economist. are you thinking we're going to get 4% growth in the next couple of years? >> yeah, i do. if mr. romney is elected, we will get 4% to 5% growth. >> why? >> because he will attack the real problem. >> why? >> stimulus spending is like a band-aid. it's a temporary -- we need to solve the problems with regard to china, reopen our energy sector and have reasonable regulations to business so they're not afraid to invest. if we grew the economy at the pace that mr. reagan did, we would surely get 12 million jobs, even more than that and we would get unemployment down to some acceptable level. >> the tax drop under reagan, which everybody likes to quote, was significantly larger than anything being proposed, including by mitt romney and anything more than we can afford right now. but stay right there, peter. we'll come back to this. >> ali, let me bring in diane swonk, who can take the politics out of this for a moment. we're not going to wake up to the same economic problems on wednesday j
is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on television in pennsylvania suggest there is some concern that the race has pulled closer than the obama folks thought it it could would be. >> heather: and storm sandy and jobs report. last one that came out on friday? >> these are both hard questions. simply because we've hevnhev an event like this speaking of sandy so close to a national election. how voters respond to the negativity and clamor of the campaign which as come back to full swing as to what has happened in new jersey, new york and connecticut, it's such an open question. it will be interesting to see how it plays out in terms of whether voters take that into account and think about that on tuesday. >> heather: we appreciate your insight. >> gregg: becoming to the bottom of the terror attack in
guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call

. the republicans made a calculation after eight years of clinton that they were too far to the right, and needed to be in the middle for the national election, they needed compassionate conservativeism, to bush they sort of saw their bill clinton. but bush spent 1999 developing a real program. later called it big government conservatism. but he had a real plan there to create a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there for a federal role on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. the republican vision -- >> hence the immigration bill. >> exactly. this is what he ran on in 2000. so there was some real substance there. what mitt romney is doing right here, he was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. in the republican platform. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention from a policy standpoint to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to modera
with the latest. >> good evening, bret. this is a cable sent to secretary of state clinton's office at the state department showing that there was emergency meeting on august 15 at the u.s. mission in benghazi. significant because that is less than a month before the terror attack there. at this emergency meeting we're told, based on the cable, there was concern expressed by officials on the ground in benghazi that there were al-qaeda training camps there. there could be problems for from that. the cable says the regional security officer expressed concern with the ability to defend the post in event of the coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities and post nation is up -- host nation support and the overall size of the compound. they also in this cable say if the emergency meeting they describe the security situation in benghazi, as "trending negatively." they also said that they would be asking for more protection from the government. we know the calls for more security were not heeded. also important to note, though, that the cable says that the intel
-in-chief and not only this time around, but this failure disqualifies hillary clinton from being a future commander-in-chief. as she says the buck also stops with her and clearly, she is not qualified to be president of the united states if she watched these people die. >> alisyn: brian, why haven't we been able to get more straight forward answers from the administration? >> we're waiting, i believe you said it right, a measured response, the republican house is doing an investigation, let's be fair and give it time. and i understand there's a timetable, let's be clear about presidential issues when it comes to mitt romney, number within where does he stand on endorsement of richard mourdock, and rape and have children of rape. >> and benghazi, we're talking about-- >> and the second point, the second point he needs to talk about john sununu and racist remarks he's made in general colin powell and talk about the points-- >> no, leadership is the recognize we're not political party we're right versus wrong, getting answers. four men dead in benghazi and part the of the conversation, why we're not g
is this is what president clinton mentioned in the democratic convention. she voted for the same thing anywhere. it's in the ryan budget. the ryan budget keeps these cuts. so and ann marie buerkle talk that we need to do differently, how come she hasn't? she's been the congresswoman for two years. where's the change? buerkle: let's be real clear. the affordable care act in its current form cuts medicare for our seniors by $700 billion. a cut of medicare advantage by two and 50 billion, and 300 billion the cbo has is with us cuts to be even more. that does not add cats to insurance coverage to medicare is a federal program. it will be cuts to the services that are hospitals and physicians can provide for our seniors. those will be the cuts. the impact our seniors will be real. we are already hearing from our constituents saying that the cabinet decision you will treat medicare patients. it's real and it is a really consequence of this affordable care act. >> moderator: ursala rozum, 30 seconds. rozum: i think disagreement over the affordable care act and constant debate over health care that we
to the event are being asked to bring relief supplies. bill clinton will be campaigning for the present today at a rally in minneapolis at the university of minnesota. we will have another event this afternoon. paul ryan will drop by a romney campaign office banking volunteers for help with storm relief efforts. this evening he is scheduled to stop at another office in hudson. fo>> i like to ask you a questin similar to that of the vice- presidential candidates. as a catholic, how has your view on abortion been shipped by your religion. >> i'm not catholic. i am an episcopalian. i cannot answer that question. my husband is a catholic. we have raised our children as catholics. i would be happy to talk about my view on abortion. it should be safe, legal, and repair. >> here is a valid point that is constructed. we have babies in america and i would that are being aborted simply because they are little baby girls, because the mother wants a boy instead of a girl. we have legislation before congress that prohibits sex selective abortion. she thinks it is ridiculous to talk about it. i think it ma
that would lead as mrs. clinton has said to equate using the sanctions and i think the solution is for iran to find a way to accept the deal that is on offer. thank you. >> 's thank you. [applause] >> we have some good questions here, but let me ask if anyone wants to comment on this because the title is american and arab policy shortcomings. people emphasize u.s. policy. does anyone want to comment on what the gcc countries think about american policy in the region in terms of its containment? for example, it seems to me they're generally satisfied with the defense cooperation and have accepted and cooperated on sanctions, but they have considerable concerns about war and considerable concerns about consequences of iraq and what our policy is in syria and certainly palestine. so would anyone like to comment about that? >> can everybody hear me? i think part of iran's failure is isolating itself from its neighbors, particularly the gcc states. under ahmadinejad in 2005, the islamic republic has done a lot to scare everybody in the region. but a range of other actions when you look at irania
was bill clinton. you know, the interesting thing was, when he was elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the
're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, and all of clinton's spending programs were eliminated. all of the things he was going to spend money on. he was planning on having deficits $200 billion a year, if you look at his budget from '93 and '94. what changed was he lost control of congress and all of his spending plans were taken off the table. that's
-president biden was there today's topic for reelection. expected to be joined by former president bill clinton, and you can watch that live at 3:30 p.m. eastern on our companion network c-span. >> as you consider that, you know, while ago no one would ever agree to carry around a tracking device. now we all carry around cell phones, which you can inherit the track. no one would ever have posted, you know, let anyone read their you know, right now all of us use the e-mail and it's all store on the server by go will. and so this is interesting that we, as a society, have given our information out. >> we were looking into cyber and cyber security, cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and networks as a new domain of war, and yet we realize that maybe one in 1,000 people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. and so what we are trying to do is to take pieces of it and explain the fundamentals of the platonic idea that everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understan

clinton. i take the post of the secretary of state would not be in the discussion typically? is that right? >> i am sure that she was in these discussions. but she isn't in the military chain of command. military chain is command she would have given advice. her advice would have been should you go into libyan territory or not. the interesting thing is that her embassy had the courage to immediately take a plane which was as far as our military base and put six americans on that plane and said go over there, 400 miles away get in that fight. try to help. they would never have done that if they hadn't gone back to state department and said we're going to send in reinforcements. you getting more confused. state department willing to do something. have you our military not willing to do something. that is really bizarre. >> where is the breakdown? i'm trying to look. i've made a tree of names you've given me trying to figure out what do you see is this -- where do things breakdown in this? from president obama to general demps dwree general hamm. >> at the top. right there. if the president g

clinton's national security operation form. last month in new york, it provides a venue for collaborative securities discussions with all of the gcc nations. but something has changed. it was reflected in the recent summit last august. i spoke with many of and some of them spoke with a different idea in the atmosphere of the meetings. one individual in particular described it this way. he said the attendees had constituent concerns. these concerns were expressed. they were not just representing their government. there was a keen sense that they were representing their people. plus, they had to go back home. they had to explain their roles to their people. the arab spring has produced a very real sense of accountability on the part of the leadership in the region. .. the operative word for government was controlled. you can show the media and the message. you control the population is at the borders. you control local and regional events. it was true for the governments of the region. it is true for u.s. policy as reflected in the outsize focus on military capability. but today, informatio
secretary clinton made the right decision here. to order an independent, objective investigation and review and that's underway. sometimes these things take time. and they don't lend themselves to people's political endars. i also think, the two most important issues getting lost is, what can we do to upgrade embassy security, and that means that republicans and democrats should fully fund in the congress and receive security. and can we go after the groups that killed ambassador chris stevens and his colleagues? president obama said he will do that and i trust he is trying to do that. i think that's where we should be putting our attention, especially this week. >> a final question to you. is it possible that we may never know why certain crucial pieces of information that were known to some people very early on were not shared with the american public? that we'll never know whether there was a concerted decision and who made it? >> well, that would be a shame. it would be a problem, a travesty. and i think this is why congress really needs to dig into this. certainly the families of those
